It will teach you and them a thing or two about reusing, recycling, minimizing waste, and healthy living. Here are some great Earth Day (and week) events you don’t want to miss!

Earth Day Party for the Planetat Franklin Park Zoo (Sunday, April 22, 10 am to 3 pm): Even as is, a zoo is a ton of fun! On Sunday there will be special exhibitors such as Mass Wildlife, Green Schools, and Sunlight Solar Energy as well as music, treats for the animals and a chance to recycle your electronics.

19th Annual Earth Day Clothing Drivein Boston (Monday, April 23rd – Friday, May 11th, 7 am to 7 pm): Get on that spring cleaning and help those in need by donating clothing, shoes, and accessories. What a great idea!

Natick Earth Day Festivalat Natick Common (Sunday, April 22, 11 am to 3 pm): Live music, food, conversations on sustainability and environmental education, kids activities, Live Birds of Prey Show. Sign up for a free Home Energy Audit!

Earth Day 2012 at New England Wild Flower Society(Sunday, April 22, 9 am to 5 pm): Half price admission and a host of events from noon to four. Take a scavenger hunt, make a butterfly ring, learn about native plants, create a memory piece of art. Free parking (unlike Boston)!

Picnic for the Planetat the Boston Common Frog Pond (Sunday, April 22, 11 am to 5 pm): Sample local foods, listen to live music, enter to win free tickets to Earthfest (May). The event is rain or shine and will attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the largest global picnic!

All across the country towns and cities also have volunteer clean ups at local parks, rivers, and public spaces. It can be a lot of fun for kids and will teach them something, next time perhaps they will walk the extra ten feet to the trash bin instead of littering!
